John Thomas added: The re-use of the barrow by Iron Age, Roman and Anglo Saxon people is very interesting

John Thomas added: The re-use of the barrow by Iron Age, Roman and Anglo Saxon people is very interesting. These people could not have had any knowledge of the original use and meaning attached to the monument – but it survived as a prominent landmark in a fairly flat landscape and became the focus for settlement in these periods. It was perhaps imagined to contain the ancestral spirits of the land and by associating themselves with the long dead, the living could make claims to be their successors and heirs – giving them a ‘right’ to live there.

A University of Leicester project has investigated how different generations have re-used ancient sacred places. The site during excavation. Archaeologists stand around the line of the backfilled Bronze Age barrow ditch. The Cossington Barrows would. The Cossington Barrows would have once been positioned in the middle background.

A previously unknown Bronze Age monument has been discovered hidden . The discovery is featured in a new book by Mr Hoyle - Hidden Landscapes of the Forest of Dean

A previously unknown Bronze Age monument has been discovered hidden in woodland in the Forest of Dean following an airborne laser scan. The technique used laser beams fired from an aeroplane to create a 3D record of the land surface, effectively removing the trees from the landscape. Mr Hoyle said when he studied the data, he spotted an "extremely circular" feature, which he thought initially might be a World War Two gun emplacement. The discovery is featured in a new book by Mr Hoyle - Hidden Landscapes of the Forest of Dean. You may also be interested in
